Best Medium Length Hairstyles For Fine Hair

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Medium is the most versatile hair length. It’s long enough to tie a ponytail or bun, but short enough to style it without spending a lot of time and effort. And for those with thin and fine hair, a medium length hairstyle is a particularly good choice. When hair gets too long, it looks ragged and stringy. Cut too short, it looks sad and limp. A mid-length cut adds movement and life to thin hair while retaining some natural volume.

Discover some of our favorite shoulder-length hairstyles and haircuts for fine hair below—along with expert styling tips from hair pros Melanie Bolton and Gretchen Friese.

Note that some of the hairstyles below are for celebrities with thick hair. However, the focus should be on the logistics of the hairstyle, all of which are suitable for thin hair.

While it’s good to avoid over-texturing your hair with lots of layers to maintain and add volume, that doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t

Layer. “A shoulder-length cut with light layers still has a flattering curve, but volume and movement,” says Friese. All you need to style this look is Kérastase L’incroyable Blow-Dry Reshapable Lotion ($37) and a round brush.

Nicole Richie’s mid-length hair looks sleek and shiny thanks to big waves and lots of shine—we like Sachajuan Shine Serum ($36) because it mimics the latter. Richie is proof that you don’t have to fake high volume to achieve a sleek, red-carpet-worthy result.

And luckily, according to Bolton, this look is also “very easy to achieve.” “On damp hair, apply a volumizing product at the roots to add volume. Then blow-dry straight with a large brush, sweeping the strands up and drying the roots underneath to add volume,” she explains. “Finally, use a large curling iron to create loose curls and finish the look with a spritz of dry texturizing spray to prevent curls from fraying throughout the day.” Look? Dead.

If you have fine curls and shoulder-length hair, check out Zendaya’s book. Here, her hair is slightly tapered at the ends and curled throughout. Waves add structure and movement so fine hair looks fuller and healthier. The slightly tousled texture creates a sense of the ultimate cool girl look.

Lily Collins exudes a youthful beach vibe with her vibrant hair texture. Her beachy waves are perfect for those with limp hair as they lift and curl the hair, creating the illusion of more volume. Red lipstick and bold brows don’t hurt either.

While regular layers can make hair look thinner—a definite no-no for those of us with already thin locks—inner, or invisible, layers add texture and body. And according to Frize, they are also a good option for anyone who wants to keep their hair longer. “Since short hair supports long hair, adding shorter sections underneath longer sections above them creates a lot of volume,” she says. “I recommend blow drying with BosleyMDStyle+ Blow Dry & Styling Gel ($19) and a round brush to create volume.”

The secret to Elle Fanning’s bouncy hair seems to be the softly curled ends, removing any hint of limpness from the look. Use a 1.5″ curling iron like the T3 Voluminous Curls 1.5″ Clip Barrel ($100) to achieve a soft, effortless wave. We also recommend washing strands with activated charcoal shampoo – our secret to clean, bouncy hair.

While those with fine locks should avoid layering, there is another type of layered look that can work for you that we highly recommend. Ciara shows us how applying long layers with a light wave gives the impression of extra volume, thickness, not to mention romance. The feathery, pointed ends also ensure that the mane moves and bounces.

If you have fine hair and avoid traditional bangs, worried that your hair will look sparse, Emma Watson’s baby bangs could be the solution. Because of the highly structured, razor-sharp approach, short feathered locks are a real eye-catcher and not the least bit wiry.

Ways To Wear Layered Hair In 2023

“It’s important to apply a little medium-hold texturizing cream to damp hair at the bangs for control and blow dry the area down from the roots and down with your fingers,” says Bolton. “Once the bangs are dry, you can continue to style the lengths. Finally, apply a spray of hairspray (Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode Flexible Hold Hairspray, $32) to set the look.” But keep in mind that these bangs need regular professional maintenance. So unless you’re committed to it, we recommend you avoid this style.

Jessica Alba’s collarbone length hair looks healthy and perfectly styled and elegant. “There’s nothing cuter than a great mid-length cut to maximize volume, texture and style,” says Bolton. Curling the ends inward is a simple but effective trick to add volume to your hair. Complete the look with a statement headband.

January Jones shows us how to add bangs to a shoulder length hairstyle. According to Bolton, “[it] is the perfect alternative for fine hair because it has enough length to keep it tangle-free and enough texture to keep it from falling out.” The bangs are long and shaggy and go perfectly with the rest of her wavy hair. While bangs can sometimes make fine hair look even finer, you can avoid the frizzy look by styling it with a texturizing spray like Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray ($30). “These bangs have their own style that gives you the flexibility to wear your lengths,” she adds.

Kerry Washington’s lob looks full and healthy thanks to lots of shine and small alternating waves. The side part adds volume to the hair, and the blunt ends add density at the roots. It’s basically perfection.

Yes, Doutzen Kruse’s hair looks significantly more voluminous here, but as girls with fine hair know, a little volumizing mist or volumizing dry shampoo can sometimes do wonders for second-day locks. We love OGX’s Bodifying + Fiber Full Body Renew Dry Shampoo ($12), which literally strengthens hair before our eyes. However, her long locks build on top of each other and make the mid-lengths look very full.

If you have fine hair, you don’t have to avoid bangs because you’re afraid the locks will look stringy. In fact, the right kind of bangs can make hair look thicker than it actually is while still looking super trendy.

“If the hair is thick enough in the front, deep, thick bangs are a good way to draw attention to a thicker part of the hair,” says Freeze. “The cut above the eyes makes those beautiful eyes pop. I recommend using BosleyMD Volumizing and Thickening Styling Mousse ($9) on wet bangs and blow-drying on the sides, then down with a flat brush for a full, blunt look.”

Selena Gomez puts her long shoulder-length dress to the side for a comeback (polka dots and a shade of green help, too). “Any cut with a blunt perimeter creates the illusion of thicker hair than a cut with more textured or feathered ends,” says Friese.

Is there anyone better suited to rock this ’70s hairstyle than Georgia May Jagger? We don’t think so. Her waterfall layers add volume to this medium length hairstyle, especially when pulled back.

“With fine hair, this look aims to promote volume and soft texture with every step,” comments Bolton. “With damp hair, apply a volumizing product like Flow’s Boundless Body Plumping Lotion ($22) to the roots to add bounce, and apply a medium texture cream (like Verb’s Sea Texture Cream, $25) to the lengths to define. Create a center part and blow dry hair 75 percent upside down. While doing this, flip the hair upright to dry it completely. Finally, with an iron, t curl the layers from the center of the hair down to create a slight twist at the edge and soft waves throughout the hair.”

The key to pulling off this look is to keep it unstructured and structured, notes Bolton. Use your fingers to stroke the roots of the hair during use rather than combing or combing as this will cause the fine hair to lose texture and become flatter.

Consider adding soft baby lights — like Chrissy Teigen’s here — to maximize the illusion of dimension and fullness in your look.

Flattering Medium Length Haircuts For Women Over 50

Cara Delevingne is one of our favorite sources of hair inspiration because she never disappoints. And while many of her best hair moments can be described as bold and daring, this cut is simple but makes a statement. Dull razors are more flattering as they make the hair look thick and thick, which is what fine hair usually does
